Automatic Transmissions

The automatic transmission is one of the hardest working parts of your car. Over time oil becomes contaminated which causes wear and premature faults with your Auto transmission.

 Your transmission should be serviced regularly – about every 3 years or 50,000km and more often if towing or in environments that cause a lot of stopping and starting.

Signs Of Auto Transmission Faults

  • Harsh shifting or jerky gear changing
  • Sudden revving of engine due to transmission slipping
  • Gear shifting appears slower
  • Slow acceleration
  • Oil smells burnt or is a brownest colour
  • Shuddering when driving
  • Delay when shifting from reverse to drive
  • Oil leaks, low oil levels is one of the main causes of transmission faults
